The Kewanee Area United Way utilizes fundraisers to raise funds to support both the Agencies in Henry and Stark County that have been approved for grants during the current year and any relevant community impact projects that may become necessary to build the community in the areas of Financial Security, Educational Success and Health. These fundraisers are held to supplement the donations that are regularly received each month, quarter or yearly. The goal for 2022 fundraisers is $10,000 to $15,000. Can it be done?? We will all see, won't we! Knowing the communities in Stark and Henry County; We say yes it can!!
Since the pandemic has effected just about everyone across the globe nonprofit funding has decreased substantially and Kewanee Area United Way was impacted considerably in 2021. Fundraisers are a filler to 'stand in the gap' between what is needed to fund the 16 agencies that provide much needed services in Henry and Stark County and the actual amount of donations that are received each year. Please support the Kewanee Area United Way and 'Stand in the Gap' to keep essential services available to all residents of our two counties.
Fundraisers for 2023 are as follows. Specific details and dates will be posted prior to the event on the website calendar and announced on Facebook.
